Are you considering turning your love of organizing into a career as a professional organizer but you have no idea where to begin? Have you already started your organizing career but have found yourself struggling in certain areas? Do you feel like there is so much you don’t know? If so, you have definitely come to the right place!
The question we hear most often from people considering becoming a professional organizer is “can I shadow you for free on a job?”. Unfortunately, that’s just not possible due to liability reasons and client confidentiality. However, Professional Organizer Boot Camp is similar to shadowing because in each on-demand course, Certified Professional Organizer, Sue Anderson shares everything she knows about that subject (including the good, the bad, the ups and the downs) to better help you become the best organizer you can be!
Professional Organizer Boot Camp has the answers to all of your burning questions, needs and concerns with on-demand education that is accessible 24/7 and one-on-one coaching from Certified Professional Organizer, Sue Anderson. The audio courses are geared for both new and existing professional organizers, but the information can likely be applied to most businesses. Pick as many or as few of the audio courses as you want.
